Program Will Allow Vendors To Secure Spots During First Friday Event

Beginning November 2023, a new pilot program will create designated spots for mobile food trucks and trailers during the monthly First Friday event in the 18B Las Vegas Arts District. Vendors that are licensed and approved to operate in the city of Las Vegas will have the opportunity to have a spot, based on a lottery.

Interested food truck and trailer operators must apply in person for the lottery by noon on Oct. 20, at the Las Vegas Parking Services Office located at 350 S. City Parkway. The lottery will be held at the same location Oct. 25 at 9 a.m., and food trucks will be able to choose the date and spot that they want to operate in over the next six months.

Available locations for First Fridays include:

  • 21 W. Imperial Ave.;
  • 1401 S. Commerce St.;
  • 1319 S. Commerce St.;
  • 1221 S. Casino Center Blvd.; and
  • 198 E. Colorado Ave.

The pilot program is the result of the city of Las Vegas staff meeting with businesses in the Arts District and the 18B Board following concerns about illegal parking and use of private properties without consent. The city already has a successful food truck lottery in place for other parts of downtown Las Vegas.

The Oct. 25 lottery will be limited to those that have registered and companies currently licensed to operate mobile food vending trucks or trailers in the city of Las Vegas. There is a fee of $50 per application to enter the lottery.

Lottery winners will be able to use the space they choose on the First Friday of their choice from 6 to 10 p.m.

For more information about the Mobile Food Vendor Pilot Program, vendors may contact Parking Services via email at [email protected] or by phone at 702.229.4700.
